I'm running a Pixel on 8.1. I reloaded the 220.127.116.11351.firmware on my WRT3200ACM to test and had the same outcome. After a few hours devices were disconnecting randomly.
Switched back to18.104.22.168063 and it seems stable.

I have a few devices running 8.1. The problem persists with these devices. In fact, at first I thought my WiFi problems were due to the updates (as they both started around the same time).

Newest update ruined 5ghz network for me as well. Tried rolling back to the previous firmware (which was working fine before the update) and it is still doing the same thing (dropping 5ghz wifi after about 30 mins or so). Hopefully Linksys will fix this soon...

Before the update I had regular but intermittent issues with Ver. 22.214.171.124063. Basicilly devices not having internet access.
I have Home Automation, Arlo and Nest Camera's , 4 Amazon Alex'as as well as phones Firetv's, Roku, Chromecast, Kids PC's Tablets, etc... So if the Wifi isn't stable. I notice. All but one device was on 5Ghz.
I use complex passwords that are 10+ characters long from a random password generatorusing special characters, numbers and letters. Usually Characters "A-Z", "a-z", "0-9" and "!@#$%^&*".
The upgrade to 126.96.36.199351 caused Wifi to fail on all devices usually within about an hour. Once went about 2/3 of a day. But much of that was overnight when nobody was actively using it.
Reverting to 188.8.131.52063. works better. But I still have issues. Haven't left it running long enough to see if I'm back to the original problem only. Brough my Old Asus Router back online since it runs forever without any issues.
Planning on ordering a different replacement router in the next day or so.

Linksys, can you give us basic factory firmware1.0.170608.4 (Factory)? We can try it. I try downgrading to 208 and 201 firmware on my wrt32x and promblems are still.

my experience with this router (WRT3200ACM)
i got my router recertified from linksys web in may this year, 7 months ago.... open the box install it all default. i only change network name and password.
never had any problem, a couple of weeks ago i start loosing conectivity with my cellphone (samsung galaxy) i restart the router and the problem was gone... some days after my wife start with the same problem (same cellphone) and after that, every day at least 3 or 4 times.... restarting the router all the time is boring.... i check for firmware update and my router had the last one.
i use direct tv now for tv in my place and is imposible to watch tv after this problem because drop connection every 5 or 10 minutes.
the problem was loosing the wifi, have to restart client wifi and work again
i install dd-wrt and continue with the same problem.....rollback to Ver. 184.108.40.206063 and the problem was different. never loose the wifi again but stop opening webs every 20 or 30 minutes..
today i did a change on my router, i select a channel for my wireless network manualy.... and the problem is gone....i have more than 3 hours without any problem (before was every 15 or 20 minutes)
i hope linksys can fix this problem because is a lot of money in this router to have to many issues.....
